Default Bald Guys: Nair on your head??

Need some advice from my fellow bald guys out there...
I can't shave my head with a razor cause I get horrible razor bumps on the back of my neck.

Anybody tried Nair or a similar product on their head?
How's it work?
Which product to use?
Any horror stories? I've seen Nair burn the s**t out off peoples heads before. Is there a secret to getting it right?

Help a brotha out

Help a brotha out



same thing happened to me until I figured it out....

Headblade works ok, but I still got bumps.....



I don't know about nair or some other product ... (what did BIG use off of rob and big show??)


My ELECTRIC fusion razor with 5 blades works 2x better than my old gillette mach 3 turbo (electric razor).....

Keeping razor burn at a minimum is what these multi blade razors do so well!!!!

BUT, get the electric version that uses a battery!!!!!

The vibration that the razor gives is most important to the smoothness of the shave and the reduction in irritation......

Use gillette fusion shaving gel and the electric fusion razor and see if you can get a razor-burn free shave.....



I have tried over 5 different kinds of razors and electric razors and nothing works close to as good as the fusion electric....


I do a full head shave and my beard at least three times a week.... I use about one new blade per week with the fusion.....

two swipes to make an area completely baby's a$$ bald and smooth.....

one against the grain and one with the grain.....



GOOD LUCK!!!

I would say go with Art of Shaving for the pre-shave oil, shaving foam, and after shave lotion.
Best damnd head shave I have ever gotten is with this combo. I use a non-vibrating Mach 5.
No bumps or irritations to speak of.
Been shaving for about 12 years now.

and, yes I did try Nair as well as Waxing- both gave me more irritation and ingrown hairs than I would ever care to admit.

I've done it many times, no problems whatsoever. Don't put it on your nipples though, it'll make them feel like fire! The key when using Nair is to WIPE it once or twice and not rub. Also make sure the wash cloth is damp with warm water and not dry. I have never heard of/seen anyone using it on their head. If it does burn your head, expect it to leave blotchy red marks like it did on my nipples.

Use American Crew Shaving oil. I've been shaving my noggin for about 5 years and I can say I've tried everything. I have found that shaving oil is the best to keep from getting razeor rash.. You only need a few drops for your entire head and face, and it doesn't rinse off really easy so it's perfect for shaving in the shower. Also since it's not a shaving cream you won't end up with dry skin.

not rich at all.....

I use about one can of fusion shave gel per 3 months or so.... so $6 /3= $2 per month of shave gel

1 blade per week = ~~$22 per month for head and face shave and grooming......


$22 per month = teh cheapness for hair and shaving per month...

My barber cost me $20 each time and I had to drive for 45miles to get a decent haircut.....

and I still had to shave my face so I was still using razors, but at about 1/2 the rate of shaving everything on my head....

It's not so much the shave as the hairs growing back in that gives me the bumps. My head feels fine for a few days until the hair starts growing back and then all hell breaks loose.

hells ya to this stuff and their cream shave (one of the few things i miss about my recent ex-girl, she used to get me this stuff for super cheap). i knew a guy that used the razorless shave stuff thats marketed for black guys, basically it's nair, used it on his scalp, head got a bit red but seemed to do the job relativly pain free. just be sure ya test your tolerance to it before covering your whole head in it

For the ones saying to use it on your junk are FULL OF CRAP! Unless you like the feeling of "THEM" being on fire DON NOT DO IT! It would probably be less painfull if you held a Zippo under them for 5 min than using nair.. . . . .some people are so damn mean towards otters!
